Chippewa Given Green Light To Rebrand


A motion brought forward by Trustee Bill Steer was approved at Tuesday night’s Near North District School Board meeting. The approved motion voices Trustee support to the formation of a school-based committee to oversee the rebranding of Chippewa Secondary School.

The committee will not oversee renaming. The motion voices Trustee agreement with rebranding and the transition of rebranding to the school, which Trustee Steer noted is “good for students and the community.” In the process, the school will collaboratively choose a new mascot for use by teams and clubs.

Indigenous Trustee Ashley St. Pierre said this will be an opportunity to “learn from past mistakes and hurts” and is a chance to build relationships with community and First Nations partners.
